Traffic to New Zealand’s Immigration Website Skyrocketed After the Australian Election

The “I’m moving to New Zealand” line’s been thrown around a bit in the wake of Australia’s federal election result on Saturday....

Immigration New Zealand revealed that the number of people in Australia looking at its website on Sunday—the day after the election—increased more than tenfold compared to the same time the week before....

Jennifer Curtin, politics professor at Auckland University and an expert in trans-Tasman politics, suggested that the sudden interest in emigrating to New Zealand could be a temporary reaction to voters’—particularly progressive voters’—disappointment that Labor didn’t win. When the economic realities of actually moving country were fully considered, she said, people’s enthusiasm was likely to wane.
